North Jetty of Humboldt Bay

This photo was the result of dodging salt spray in a crisp spring breeze, crouching among the rocks of the jetty during high tide.

The light is really what makes this photo special in my eyes. Particularly the way it plays into the spray caught in mid air, both illuminating and casting shadow at once. I only wish the jetty wall went into a true vanishing point, but the saltwater prevented me from getting any closer.
